THE WAYNE MORSE LEGACY SERIES


U.S. Senator Wayne Morse was a stalwart advocate of open and transparent government, public debate, and the importance of protecting our constitutional and civil liberties. As one of only two Senators to vote against the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, Morse’s dissent against the Vietnam War is his most enduring and memorable legacy. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, The Wayne Morse Legacy Series shows the relevance of Morse’s principles to important current issues of national security and military affairs, through non-partisan, free. public programs in Oregon and Washington, D.C.
